Federal Depository Library Program
The law library is a selective federal depository library (fdlp.gov), and everyone is welcome to use our collection.

Examples of materials we get through this program include:
- Budget of the United States Government
- Code of Federal Regulations
- Congressional Directory
- Congressional Record (Daily)
- Federal Register
- Statutes at Large
- U.S. Government Manual
- U.S. Code
- U.S. Supreme Court Reports
- World Factbook

By state law, only specific groups of state government employees may check out materials from the law library. All others are welcome to use materials in the library.
